ANSI Standard IT9.9-1990 is one methodology commonly recommended for predicting dark storage print life for color photographic materials. This methodology focuses primarily on measurement of changes that occur due to temperature at one relative humidity (50% ± 3%). Of greater concern for dark stability of inkjet prints, however, is humidity levels that are higher than 50% RH, especially as consumer usage of inkjet continues to expand all over the world. Ink/media combinations exist today that respond almost immediately to humidity in excess of 50% RH, even at ambient temperatures, and these instabilities are a major concern for both manufacturer and user. In addition, the effects of elevated humidity on inkjet prints vary widely between different ink/media combinations. Several quantitative measures are necessary to adequately describe the resultant behaviors. The objective of this paper is to begin to explore these relationships providing a foundation of understanding that will ultimately lead to a robust model that correctly predicts the image quality degradation as a result of exposure to variable dark keeping conditions.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
